|Bandai Candy/Shokugan has opened pre-orders for the next kit in the Super Minipla line — Giant Gorg. Initially revealed in the recently released Super Minipla Encyclopedia, it was designed by T-REX. Yes, the same people who did the 40 cm Sen-Ti-Nel Giant Gorg figure.
As for the Super Minipla version, it stands 13.5 cm, features wide range of articulation, opening chest cockpit, and an in-scale Yuu Tagami that can be mounted on the top of its head. The box set will also include parts to build the Manon Type while a separate Rubble Guardian set will be released via Premium Bandai as a Bandai Candy Online Shop exclusive.
|This is Today’s Robits – posts that showcase CATALOGUE-related acquisitions for the entire duration of the covered period. In other words, it’s all about this
It has been quite a long while since the last one and and because it’s now December, there’s no perfect time to cover the robits for Q3 2017 than today…? Anyway, two of these came from a sale over HLJ while the two Mazingers are from the game Super Robot Wars V.
Looking at these four, it kind of makes one wonder why they chose a different packaging style for Giant Robo.
|Collecting Super Sentai robots is one rabbit hole this collector is glad to avoid. That said, things might be different when it comes to Super Minipla. After releasing the Megazord, Dragonzord and Titanus, Bandai Candy will to continue the Super Sentai train with Live Robo and Live Boxer from Liveman. They can also combine to form the Super Live Robo while maintaining the articulation of the individual robots.
Thinking of getting both but won’t give the same effort when building Gunpla, will just use the marking seals and apply some flat top coat.

|Bandai Candy has been very ambitious with their Super Minipla releases and everyone really appreciates what they’re doing. So here’s another amazing kit to add to their already great line up.
Following their GaoGaiGar release is none other than Super Minipla King J-Der. Standing at 28 cm tall (almost the size of a Perfect Grade Gunpla), King J-Der can transform into J-Arc with J-Bird splitting off to transform into J-Der. J-Der itself is as tall as GaoGaiGar and is also articulated.
King J-Der comes with multiple accessories and can replicate the J-Quath attack, as well as replacement manipulators. The set also includes Plasma Wings and Plasma Sword effect parts for J-Der.
|The Bandai Shokugan / Candy Toy division is quite busy recently with their upcoming Super MiniPla Galient releases (with this collector unfortunately missing pre-orders) when they decide to show this guy all in its prototype glory.
To the unfamiliar, this is Zambo Ace, the core unit of Zambot 3. While they haven’t shown the latter, it won’t make sense if they didn’t eventually show Zambot 3 itself. Regardless, here’s Zambo Ace and the engineering they’ve put into the kit. It transforms into Zambird via parts-forming and while expected, what’s not is that the set also comes with dedicated parts to build Zambird itself. This allows the display of both Zambo Ace and Zambird simultaneously.
Really looking forward to this guy now and here’s hoping for wider pre-order windows.
